Anthrax May Have More Material Than Needed For New Album

(hennemusic) Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian has revealed the band's plans for a new album in an interview with Rolling Stone, telling the publication that they have a lot of new material to work with.

Asked if the band had started working on the follow-up to 2011's "Worship Music", Ian replied, "Yeah. Frank [Bello, bass] and Charlie [Benante, drums] came out here to my house and we jumped right in in November. Not to jinx anything, but things have been going pretty fast creatively, which normally isn't the case.

"We've got a ton of material; I'm talking 12 songs now, musically arranged. I'm on my fifth and sixth lyrically, and Charlie sent over ideas for two more songs. He even wrote in an email, 'Now the really good stuff is coming.' And I was like, 'Really? The sh*t we have right now is pretty f***ing killer.'"

"This could probably be the first time in this band's history that we'll go into the studio with more original material than we need," he continued. "Normally we have nine or 10 songs then do a bunch of covers, but I can safely say this time, we'll be recording about 15 of our own songs, if not more, which we've never had before." more on this story
